Wow, this was so delicious. Really wonderful, and made my house smell so homey. I served it with corn muffins.

Best ever from scratch baked beans I've made. These turned out nice and soft and great flavor and texture. I did add more brown sugar and maple syrup for a sweeter taste. Also, added beans wi...
